M.D. Creekmore, of The Survivalist Blog gives us six important reasons why some preppers won’t survive when the SHTF.
Hat tip to Tess at Ready Nutrition for the link.
We’ve included some brief excerpts from the article below:
Overconfidence – The overconfidence effect is a bias in which someone’s subjective confidence in their judgments and abilities is greater that their actual skill set or knowledge.
Procrastination – Procrastination, the habit of putting things off to the last possible minute, can get you killed. In a true collapse situation you may not have time to run to the corner grocery to stock up.
Inefficient use of resources – Wasting money (resources) on things of lesser importance, while neglecting the stuff needed to survive.
Failure to act – This one ties in with procrastination and indecision and many of us suffer from it. Not only will it interfere with your survival plans it can stop you from planning at all. Look at your situation, form a plan (write it down) and do it. No excuses.
Lack of persistence – Most people start their survival preps with the utmost determination and desire to get things done – but they stop when they run into the first obstacle. They lack persistence.
Divided actions – Many preppers run around like the chicken with its head cut off. Their actions are divided, to the point where they never get anything done.
